INTRODUCTION TO PATHOGENESIS OF 
SACCHARUM LACTIS. 

By SAMUEL SWAN, M. D.. 
{From " The Organon," Vol, III, Jan., 1880.) 

There is something marvellous in the fact that drugs are 
made more potent by attenuation; but it is still more wonder- 
ful that substances, supposed to be inert in their crude 
state, should be rendered actively medicinal by the same 
process. But the degree of effective action is not a fixed 
fact, inherent in any particular degree of attenuation, but 
is dependent in its manifestation upon the individual sensi- 
tiveness of the person proving it, or the patient to whom it 
has been given. Thus, when homosopathically prescribed, 
in one case, a few grains of the crude drug will effect a cure; 
in another it will have no effect, but a low attenuation will 
cure ; while experience has shown that often, when a lower 
attenuation is powerless, a much higher will effect a rapid 
cure. A beautiful illustration of this last fact is recorded 
in The Organon, vol. ii., pp. 511-12, where it will be seen 
that a rapid cure was effected by Carbo-veg, 4 M, after the 
same in low dilution, and even in the 200th, had been of no 
avail. Some physicians are waiting till they know all about 
high potencies before they use them. They think they 
know all about the 30th or 200th, but all they really know 
about them is, that they act. If, instead of ventilating their 
mathematics by a long display of calculations, they were 
honestly to try a high potency of the truly Homoeopathic 
remedy in a clearly defined case, they would never write 
more regarding the how and why. 

There is scarcely an article of food that to some one has 
not proved a poison ; and there are poisons that have been 
and are constantly taken with apparent impunity. As an 
instance of the former, I will mention the case of poisoning 
by Sugar recorded in The Organon, vol. ii., p. 444. There 
are physicians who never prescribe a remedy on one 
proving ; but as all these symptoms were cured with 



i O ogle 



Sac. -officinalis 10 M, 5 M, and 41 M, I accepted it as a 
proving, and have verified the correctness of the symptoms 
in my practice. The above is commended to the notice of 
the Boston University Medical School, who made a wonder- 
ful proving of Sac. -lac, and congratulate them on having 
so many sensitive provers ; and as they had many of the 
symptoms repeated while proving Garb. -veg. 3 trit. , it shows 
conclusively that these provers were more susceptible to 
Sac-lac. than to Carb.-veg. These symptoms, experienced 
after taking Sac-lac, are of value, and should be carefully 
noted. Again, in The Organon, vol. ii., pp. 286-87, is 
recorded a case of poisoning by Milk, which was cured with 
Lac-vaccinum 10 M, ; and another case is given by Dr. 
Brooks in the Medical Investigator, vol. ix., p. 512. Call 
these articles by any other name than Sugar and Milk, and 
they would be accepted as very respectable poisons. My 
cases were cured by the same substances, highly attenuated, 
they becoming by that process so dissimilar in physical 
properties as not to be identified with the crude article by 
any known test, except that of the sensitive human 
organism ; but, by that test, proving their similarity by 
curing the patients so that they could subsequently use 
sugar and milk, respectively, with impunity. "Scientific 
men," says a writer, "cannot admit that a degree of 
attenuation, beyond that in which can be found a molecure 
of the original drug, can contain any medicinal power 
peculiar to the drug from which it is made." But when - 
such an attenuation is given in a case of sickness, having 
symptoms similar to those which inhere to the drug as evi- 
denced by poisoning, and a cure results, not in one but in 
many cases, what other inference can be drawn than that 
the attenuation does contain somewhat of its original source, 
even though that somewhat connot be discovered by the 
most delicate physical or chemical tests. 

But it is said, "Do you not potentize the sugar of milk 
in diluting a trituration, and will not it therefore modify 
the action of the drug, if it also possesses medicinal powers ?" 
Certainly ; the 30th dilution of the third trituration of 
Calcarea is a dilution of the Calcarea plus the Sac-lac ; but 
it has been proved as a unit, and must be prescribed and 
considered as 'a unit, just as we use Opium as a unit, in 
spite ofits multiplex composition. On the other hand, if it

be asked whether the crude sugar of milk with which a sub- 
stance is triturated, or which may be employed in dispensing 
a medicine, will not interfere with the action thereof, if the 
above statements are accurate, I would say, "Try for your- 
selves ;" I have used Smith's 30th centesimal triturations, 
and always found that their action was that of the drug, 
and not of the sugar of milk, because probably very few 
would be, like the Boston provers, more sensitive to' the 
latter than the former. In this varying sensitiveness of in- 
dividuals to different potencies and different drugs lay the 
entire failure of the Milwaukee Test. 

The belief or disbelief concerning the action of high 
potencies afEects only the individual. If a physician is a 
believer in their efficacy, it is only because he has tried them, 
and can give his own experience for his belief. If another dis- 
believes, and will not try them for himself, and still de- 
nounces them and those who use them, he will most surely 
gravitate to Eclecticism,- or possibly retrograde to Allo- 
pathy. 

Hahnemann used sugar of milk as the most inert sub- 
stance he could find. It was because of this supposed inert- 
ness, and on account of my belief that there is no substance 
so inert as not to show medicinal powers when attenuated, 
that the following proving of Saccharum-lactis was made. 

Pathogenesis of Saccharum Lactis, 

(The sign signifies a merely cured symptom ; * signifies a pathogenetic 
symptom also verified by a cure. The figures immediately following a 
symptom denote the authority ; those in round brackets denote the days 
on which the symptom occurred; those in square brackets the potency ; r 
signifies right ; 1 signifies left.)

The provings by Nos. 1, 6, and 7 were made with the 200 cent. (Fincke), 
that of No. 8 with the 10 M (Fincke). The other provers took potencies made 
by Dr. Swan. 

Miss Morgan commenced her proving at 9 a.m., May 25th, 1871, just 
before menses ; she took drop doses of 200 every hour for one or two days.

6 SAC. LAC. 

The first effect appeared within an hour. Previous to the proving she was 
in perfect health. She had symptoms for two or three years. The 
omission of several hundred days is due to her discontinuing to take notes; 
she was so annoyed at the persistence of the symptoms, that she only re- 
sumed her notes after great persuasion. Dr. Fincke made provings on 
two ladies ; one took two drops of 30th, the other took three drops of 58 M, 
The symptoms from 3?th are here marked % A. Two symptoms marked 
[30] seem to be from another proving. 



Mind and Disposition. 

Sensation as if it were only by a great effort that she kept 
together, and would be much relieved if she could 
fall to pieces ; she threw herself down for that pur- 
pose. 1 (19).

bed ; could not rest till she had looked. 1 (71). 

Felt afraid to go to bed without looking under, over, 
and in everything. 1 (72). 

Extremely nervous, jumps from her seat at the least 
unusual noise. 1 (49). 

p Intense nervousness, seems as if she would fly out of 
her skin ; wakes at 3 a.m., and does not sleep again 
till 7 a.m. ; worries about all sorts of things ; after 
1 M slept quietly and soundly till 7 a.m., with en- 
tire relief from nervousness. 5. 
10. She was taken suddenly with fear and trembling of the 
whole body, as from fright. 2 (1 after 3J^ hours). 

She thought she was young again, and that she wanted 
something which she feared she could not obtain.

RECORD OF PROVERS.

health, took three doses of 32nd centesimal on March 
13th, 1871, six doses March 14th, and nine doses March 
15th. On May 17th symptoms ceased, returning May 
25th. (Symptoms after 32nd potency are marked la.) 
On 27th she took one dose of lm (Fincke, marked lb,) 
and on 28th a dose of 40m {Fincke, marked lc,) in even- 
ing; the symptoms which followed abating on June 
19th. On June 21st, she took a dose of 75m (Fincke, 
marked id.) Symptoms ceased, with menses, on July 
20th, and on 28th and 30th she took one dose, each day, 
of CM (Fincke, marked lc.) From these doses symp- 
toms continued, usually at menses, till January, 1873, 
and then ceased. On January 23d, 1873, for "an op- 
pression and sense of suffocation in chest," similar to 
what she had experienced on 6th day of proving, she 
took one dose of 10m (Fincke, marked Id,) which 
relieved the oppression and was followed by some 
very marked and characteristic symptoms. There 
was a renewal of many of these symptoms for several 
months at menses.

Mind and Disposition. 

Sensation, or delusion, as if surrounded by myriads of 
snakes, some running like lightning up and down in- 
side of skin ; some that are in R side feel long and 
thin ; fears to put her feet on the floor lest she should 
tread on them, and make them squirm and wind 
round her legs ; is afraid to look behind her for fear 
she will see snakes there ; does not dream of them, 
and is seldom troubled with them after dark. 1 (38). 
On going to bed was afraid to close her eyes, for fear that 
a large snake, the size of her arm, would hit her in 
the face ; it seemed by the side of the bed, and had 
its head near hers. 1. 
Sensation as if she were going *deranged (Calc.) 1. 
When she sits still and thinks, she sometimes has 
the most horrible sights (not always snakes) pre- 
sented to her mental vision ; she is terribly afraid 
that they will take objective form and show them- 
selves to her natural eye ; and she sits and looks 
under the chairs, table, sofa, and everything in the 
room, expecting, yet dreading to see some terrible 
monster creep forth, and feeling all the time that if 
it does it will drive her raving mad (Hyos.). She is 
not afraid in the dark ; it is only in the light when 
she imagines that she can see them. Sometimes 
she feels as if she could not refrain from crying 
out with terror, 1.

Was afraid for many nights to go to bed, for just be- 
fore bed-time, a huge snake would coil itself at the 
side of the bed on the floor, and when she would 
get into bed, would crawl in too, and get under her. 
Would much rather have sat in her chair all night, 
but did not dare to let such powers have control 
over her ; though she never at any time saw the 
snakes, yet their color, size and movements were 
always known to her. 1 (38 to 45).

Woke at daylight, feeling she was a loathsome horrible 
mass of disease disgusting to herself and to every-

her body, not even her hands, as it intensified the 
feeling of disgust and horror. Could not bear to 
have any one part of her body touch another; *had 
to keep even her fingers apart from each other ; 
felt if she could not get out of her body in some 
way, she would soon become crazy : could not 
think of anything but her own condition. In a 
short time she fell into a light slumber, from which 
she woke free from all mental but not physical 
symptoms, la. (38.)

the meaning, omitting or adding things, lc. (245).

as of a dull plug pushing ; joints were stiff and 
sore and tender to touch, with but little swelling ; 
any application of fluid, whether cold or warm, 
made pain worse; worse from much heat and from 
least motion; then knees became involved, then 
hips and 1. side of chest. At first 1. ankle was 
attacked, then, after some hours suffering r. ankle, 
with relief to the part first affected; this would last 
two hours on r. side, and the pain would move 
back again to the joint first affected, and so the

12 days the pains suddenly left the soles, and ap- 
peared in r. knee-joint, being smarting, lancinating, 
with light swelling of the joint ; he could not move 
the affected limb, as the least motion increased the 
pains, as did also touch and the pressure of the bed- 
clothes. On the following day the 1. knee-joint was 
affected in the same way, the r. becoming markedly 
relieved ; but on the ensuing day, the r. was again 
affected, with relief to the 1. Afterwards the hip 
joints were attacked alternately with the same symp- 
toms which had affected the knee-joints ; alternating 
like these in the pains and swelling, the 1. joints 
being aggravated one day with relief of the r. and 
vice-versa , also lancinating pains appeared in the 1, 
side of chest. After 4 days the wrist-joints were also 
affected, first the R. with the same symptoms as 
those of the lower extremities, the symptoms of one 
side of the body alternating with those of the other. 
He was not able to move himself in bed, the lancin- 
ating pains made him cry out continually : there was 
constipation, sleeplessness, but no fever ; the pains 
and swelling were aggravated every evening, and 
especially by night, by movement, the effort to move 
himself in bed by touch and by the pressure of bed- 
clothes. 58.
